Boris Johnson has insisted his four-step plan to ease England's lockdown is a "one-way road to freedom".
The prime minister's "cautious" strategy could see the Covid restrictions fully eased by 21 June - if strict conditions are met.
The PM, who faces criticism from some of his own MPs who believe the pace of change is too slow, said it offers the best chance to avoid another lockdown.
Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will reveal her own plan later.
She has said Scotland will return to a tiered system when measures are eased, meaning different parts of the country could be under different rules.
Meanwhile, the government is also reviewing the use of "Covid status" certificates, which could be used by people to demonstrate they had received a vaccine or a negative coronavirus test to enter venues.
